Good for a catch up

Nice place although very busy on a Friday and needs more staff behind the bar. A good selection of beers and spirits.

Went there with old friends for dinner. Good atmosphere with music and general conversation from adjoining busy bar - it was Saturday night. Helpful pleasant staff. Menu offered all the classics Lamb/ Steak/ fish. Not too fussy and not too pricey.

I took business colleagues for an evening meal at Horatio's and everyone enjoyed our dishes. We all had different a wide range of dishes and everyone enjoyed them. Without hesitation I would use Horatio's again for business or pleasure.
